PostSubject: SQUATTERS VICTORY   Mon Jan 31, 2011 7:24 pm

One for the poor man!


Quote :
WHILE for years it demolished thousands of squatters’ homes, the Land Settlement Agency (LSA) did not have the lawful authority to do so, a High Court judge declared on Friday in a landmark ruling that arguably scored a victory for squatters.

In the class-action lawsuit brought by present and former occupants of several parcels of land once owned by Caroni (1975) Limited, Justice Carol Gobin also held that the State may not have a common-law right to evict persons from State lands and must comply with the requirements set out by statute. She warned that the current legislative framework must be tightened to properly deal with the problem of squatting.

“The LSA has no jurisdiction to evict squatters,” the judge ruled. “This is because the State Land (Regularisation of Tenure) Act (SLRT) at Section 27(2) clearly recognises and preserves the jurisdiction of the Commissioner of State Lands.”
